A choir of 162 took to the Cliffs of Moher this weekend to sing one of Ireland and the world's best known songs, O Danny Boy.

Although mist descended around the cliff tops, it didn't quell the magic.

The performance was part of the Limerick Sings International Choral Festival which took place over the weekend for the fifth year of the festival.

Visitors from across the US and Ireland described the performance as "incredible", "beautiful" and "most memorable".

Over two hundred choirs from across the US joined many from  Ireland to perform a diverse range of classical, sacred and contemporary music.

Other performances took place at spectacular venues including St John's Cathedral, University Concert Hall, and Holy Trinity Abbey Church in Adare.
